The wear behavior of two coatings (Fe49.7Cr18Mn1.9Mo7.4W1.6B15.2C3.8Si2.4 and Fe40Cr23Mo14C15B6Y2) sprayed by high-velocity air fuel technology was investigated through nanoscratch tests under ramping loads. Compared with the substrate, the Fe-based amorphous coatings exhibit lower penetration depth, higher elastic recovery, and lower wear volume, indicating the excellent wear resistance of the coatings. This behavior is related to the high hardness and high hardness/elastic modulus ratio (H/E) of the Fe-based amorphous coatings. From the scanning electron microscopy images of the scratch grooves, it is found out that ploughing governs the wear behavior of the coatings and substrate. In addition, spalling wear easily occurs in the pore regions of the coatings. View Full-Text
